Disinfectant Guide for Ultrafabrics

May 2023


Preferred cleaners and disinfectants for Ultrafabric polyurethanes


Many of the following disinfectants listed are on the CDCs approved list (https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-registration/list-n-disinfectants-use-against-sars-cov-2) that continues to grow and have shown to do minimal to no damage when used appropriately.


Important notes:


Cleaners/Disinfectants should only be used in the dilutions recommended by the manufacturer and never in concentrated form.


After each application, disinfectants should be thoroughly wiped off with clean water and dried with a clean towel. Any chemical residue left on a surface can cause discoloration and degradation to the surface of the fabric.


Ultrafabric engineers high-performance polyurethane materials utilizing proprietary Takumi Technology that includes premium quality polycarbonate resisn in our manufacturing process. This ensures we stay ahead of the cleaning and disinfecting challenges faced by lesser quality polyurethane constructions, and withstands the various cleaners and disinfectants essential for keeping high-traffic environments clean and sterile.

Please use all cleaning and disinfecting agents safely and as instructed. The use of other cleaning agents, disinfectants, conditioners, or protectants can degrade fabric performance and may void Ultrafabrics warranty.
